Kicking off the 13th conference on penitential security, the National Commissioner of Security, Renato Sales Heredia remembered how “he copied” the Coahuilan legislation to be replicated in other places and shut down the proliferation of casinos, and at the same time recognized the work being done in the state’s security.
The weekend in the capital the XII Regional Conference of the Northeastern Zone of the Technical Committee of Administration, Infrastructure and Penitentiary Security took place.
Representatives of the Penitentiary System of the states of Coahuila, Durango, Nuevo León, San Luis Potosí and Tamaulipas attended, in addition to federal functionaries.
There, Sales Heredia remembered Campeche’s casino proliferation problem.
“Being a lawyer from Campeche, one day we’d be inaugurating a casino on the main boulevard,” remembered the Commissioner of National Security, “and two months later we’d open a casino in front of that one, and they’d already be getting ready to open another one.”
“The casinos generate gambling addiction, and economic losses for families, and we say, how can we regulate that? The governor entrusted me with studying comparatively the different entities of the country, and I should say we copied the Law of Coahuila, and taking advantage of the license for floor usage, and other matters they haven’t opened a single new casino.”

Sales Heredia added that Rubén Moreira is worried about these subjects and will remain attentive to them; he said the only way to transform our country on these matters is, precisely, to remain attentive, knowing that citizen security is a chain that involves crime prevention to law enforcement.
